Syosset Then and Now: Tragic Estate

The bustling little Long Island town of Syosset has had many facelifts over the years. Original structures have been remodeled and replaced, leaving just a shadow of the good old days of horse-drawn carriages and general stores.

But if you look closely, sometimes you can see old Syosset hidden among the new constructions. We'll be bringing you back to the old Syosset with the help of Syosset Scrapbook and helpful photo donors.

Can you name this centrally located Syosset estate? These beautiful grounds that often saw swans gliding through the glassy waters was the location of a WWII-era tragedy, just days after Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected.

Give us your best historic guesses in the comments below!
